The 2013 CFL Draft took place on Monday, May 6, 2013 at 12:00 PM ET on TSN.[1] 60 players were chosen from among eligible players from Canadian Universities across the country, as well as Canadian players playing in the NCAA. The Montreal Alouettes had the most selections with nine, followed by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats with eight. Each of the West Division teams had seven picks while Winnipeg had six. The defending Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts had five picks and Ottawa chose four players from NCAA schools that would play another year. A total of 16 trades were made involving draft picks from this year, including two made on draft day itself, with 12 being made by the Edmonton Eskimos. Of the 60 draft selections, 44 players were drafted from Canadian Interuniversity Sport institutions, which is the highest number of CIS players taken since the 1987 CFL Draft when 50 of 72 were taken. It is also the highest percentage (73.3%) of CIS players taken since 2009 (38 of 48, 79.1%, were selected then).[2]

The Ottawa expansion team was scheduled to pick last in the first four rounds of the 2012 CFL Draft, with selections being limited to NCAA redshirt juniors.[3] Due to stadium delays, Ottawa will join the Canadian Football League in 2014, and participated in this year's draft instead.[4][5][6] 18 players were classified as redshirt juniors with 12 being selected in this year's draft.[7] The draft also expand to seven rounds this year for the first time since 1996, with the CFL citing stronger Canadian talent as a reason for the expansion.[8]

The first two rounds were broadcast live on TSN with CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon announcing each selection. The production was hosted by Rod Black and featured the CFL on TSN panel which includes Duane Forde, Chris Schultz, Paul LaPolice, Dave Naylor, Stefan Ptaszek, Brian Dobie, and Danny Maciocia who analyzed the teams' needs and picks.[9]
